'Two GOATS' - Tom Brady Watches Cristiano Ronaldo Star For Man United,  NFL Legend Reacts To Hat-Trick

Tom Brady was in attendance for Cristiano Ronaldo's starring performance for Manchester United against Tottenham, with the NFL legend reacting to the forward's hat-trick on social media.  

Brady watched on from the stands at Old Trafford as Ronaldo netted a stunning hat-trick in Man United's 3-2 win over Tottenham on Saturday.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner opened the scoring in sublime fashion after smashing home a long-range screamer in the first half.  


He then restored his side's lead after Harry Kane had levelled from the spot.  

The 37-year-old then produced a match-winning moment when he leaped the highest from a corner to head home in the 81st minute. 

Brady was seemingly in awe of Ronaldo's brilliance as he posted a GIF of the Man United man on Twitter.  


After guiding his team to three huge points, Ronaldo and Brady embraced on the pitch in a brilliant moment pitting two sporting icons. 


Ronaldo's heroic showing was praised by Ralf Rangnick, who spoke glowingly about his star player following his hat-trick.  


"Today it was his [Ronaldo] best performance, at least since I arrived," he said via @utdreport.  

"He was good in training on Thursday and that is why I decided to start him. Fantastic performance by him but also by the rest of the team.  

"He [Ronaldo] can do it [get 70,000 people off their feet], but again he can also do it only with the team. A fantastic performance. It was not just the three goals today it was also he was part of the team when they were in possession of the ball."

Antonio Conte was also full of admiration for Ronaldo, calling his performance 'decisive'. 

He said: "We’re talking about a player who not only tonight showed he is a top, top player. 

"Cristiano Ronaldo & Lionel Messi are the two best players in the world in this era. When you play against this type of player, they’re decisive."
